Changed my password for that the minute I heard about it, thankfully (of course this happens after I get laid off)...no chances taken. Dammit, hackers...

I have forgotten my password and used my work email adress of 8 years ago. So I can't get password recovery.

Maybe I should check the leaked list for my password.

The sad part is, on LinkedIn you have a HUGE amount of people who work in the web services industry with profiles who just had their passwords for LinkedIn leaked. I hope all these industry professionals are right now changing passwords a the office if they're similar to passwords on LinkedIn.
